Now we are playing with FIRE!
Work @ everybody's log in time. If I could just get this at home....
As much as I have ever enjoyed the Elder Scrolls games, the online version just did not do it for me. Maybe I tried it too early, but, I really prefer the single player when I want to do RPG.
The thing about MMORPGs Dyre is that a good deal of the missions require you to be in a group to complete (for example Star Wars The Old Republic's Heroic 2+ and 4+ missions). Also you get a big experience bonus from being in a group. (you also get 5% more exp from missions from being in a guild)
As for The Elder Scrolls online, it is plagued by a lot of bugs still and on top of that you can't even share quests with ease (don't know if they fixed that last one though).
I've been troubleshooting speed problems this morning. Seems it's all related to a particular HUB I'm using. But, I also seem to be having issues with the Intel NIC on my motherboard. Power cycling the HUB has made a difference from 5-6 Mbps to what you see here.
I know what you're referring to re: needing others to join in specific types of missions. As my hearing discrepancy improves, I'll be more confident in joining with others....or allowing them to join me or invite me to join them.
I totally understand Dyre.
Slower than 75% of the US...
If that was my internet speed I would literally hang myself, no offence intended.
still better than me
could be worse
2 of us can sit and watch Netflix at the same time, at peak time
so until we get some major upgrade work done, or move, we just have to put up
Mine is actually better than where I used to live... Mostly I just check this and another forum, email, and look up small engine info or information on my home's architecture. It suites, but it's still slow in comparison.
Just another 4G test at Helsinki.
Here I am lol.. This is in my room.. ^_^
getting bit faster here
Download Speed: 36819 kbps (4602.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 6066 kbps (758.3 KB/sec transfer rate
I decided to move from BT Business to VM Business.
BT was consistently over 70Mbps. VM spikes like mad.
Oddly enough, if I chose the server geographically closest to my location the connection speed is more stable though that server is hosted by VM.
If VM speed tests were like ECGs the doctors would die of heart attacks.
I got Virginmedia 50mbs speed upgrade offer a couple of days ago..
